The master of understatement

  • • Sandro is passionate about the future of tailoring
  • • He uses special horsehair inlay to give his jackets stability
  • • He did his apprenticeship at Frauenberg monastery

Sandro was lucky to learn his craft from a unique master: Friar Gerhard Busche at Frauenberg monastery, who has won several awards and is renowned as one of Germany’s best tailors. Today, having opened his own workshop in Hamburg, he is very concerned about the future of his craft and so has been training apprentices since the first year of running his own business. He also founded the German Tailors’ Association to ensure the future of bespoke tailoring. Sandro emphasises that there are only a few masters of his craft left; many ready-to-wear and made-to-measure sellers use the term 'tailor made' without being trained in bespoke tailoring.

Hunting jacket

This jacket in traditional Harris Tweed was designed for the hunting season. The fabric was handwoven in the Outer Hebrides in accordance with age-old techniques. Leather patches on the elbows and shoulder, together with the resistant fabric, make the jacket a reliable partner in demanding conditions.
